GE Energy Smart LED PAR lamps

(Lightfair 2009) Two new lamps from GE Consumer & Industrial - a 7-watt GE Energy Smart® LED PAR20 lamp and a 10-watt GE Energy Smart® LED PAR30 lamp - enable restaurants, retailers and other commercial customers to make significant strides toward general lighting with white LEDs.

These products of ecomagination, available as spots or floods, feature advanced optical control to concentrate the white LED light on the targeted area and effectively diminish wasted extraneous light.

“One noticeable technology achievement is the superior beam. It’s a better directed light,” says Gus Lanese, manager of growth initiatives, GE Consumer & Industrial. “Some retailer customers have already purchased these LED lamps to do the job of higher wattage, higher lumen output incandescent or halogen lamps. We know the energy and maintenance savings possibilities inherent in LEDs will be a draw for other retailers.”

While delivering consistent and crisp halogen-like colour (82 colour-rendering index) the company’s new 10-watt, 3000K GE Energy Smart LED lamp produces 340 lumens and offers up to 80 percent energy savings compared with 45-watt standard incandescent R30 lamps (485 lumens) or 50-watt Halogen PAR30 lamps (630 lumens), so it’s a perfect replacement if you can reduce your light levels. Over a 20,000-hour rated life that’s up to 10 times longer than standard incandescent or halogen light sources, the new 10-watt LED lamp delivers significant maintenance savings, plus up to $15 per year in energy cost savings (compared with a 45-watt incandescent R30 lamp, assuming 4,500 annual operating hours @ $0.10/kWh). Standard and long neck versions are available.

Just like its 10-watt cousin, the GE 7-watt LED lamp (200 lumens) helps customers excel at cutting energy costs. It reduces energy consumption by 77 percent when compared with standard 30-watt incandescent R20 reflectors (200 lumens) and, if you can reduce your light levels, you can save even more compared with halogen 50-watt PAR20 lamps (570 lumens) over 20,000 hours. The 7-watt GE LED lamps have a 20,000-hour rated life to 70 percent of initial light output, so fewer lamp replacements are needed versus standard halogen or incandescent light sources. It features an 82 CRI and is available in both 2700K and 3000K, attributes that allow it to provide crisp, halogen-like colour.
